After what has without doubt been a difficult past week, President Uhuru Kenyatta loosened up Friday, by exhibiting his dancing skills at a public function.
During the General Service Unit pass out parade held at the GSU Training School in Embakassi, Nairobi, a visibly relaxed President Kenyatta, dressed in military fatigues, couldn’t help but join hundreds of youthful recruits in song and dance at the auspicious occasion.
In a video that has since been viewed about 150,000 times in less 24 hours, the recruits repaid the honour by singing vernacular songs in praise of the Head of State.
One such song in Luhya language had the lyrics, “Omundu Uchayanga raisi wetu aliyalwa mwikulu”, which loosely to “Whoever looks down upon our President will be judged in heaven.”
In his official speech later on, President Kenyatta appreciated the fantastic display by the recruits something he attributed to the quality of training they underwent.
Uhuru’s dancing skills were also appreciated by a number of Kenyans online.
This comes in a week the President was on the spotlight for using strong words, particularly in his opinion to the doctors strike, and later on, during a public spat with Turkana Governor Josephat Nanok.
